Great Helmet for the price, or any price for that matter. This helmet has been great for me, its stood up to high heat in burn rooms and on the fire scene. The tail does its job well, ex. during overhaul my neck stayed dry and free from debris. The only downfall comes from the crawling position, such as in attics and crawl spaces, but that comes with any helmet really. these helmets can be speced out to meet any of your needs. Thanks to the MSA custom matrix. By far the lightest traditional I tried on. The 880 Chicago, paired with the 5 inch helmet leather is the lowest profile helmet of its kind. This model does not offer the defender visor, the primary eye protection that rolls up into the lid, but can be fitted with many eye protection appliances.
